February Goals with my Bullet Journal

*This post may contain affiliate links

Hello my lovelies!

So today I'm going to take a minute to share my February goals with you and show you part of my layout for my Bullet Journal. Last month, I finally shared my journal with you all and I'd like to keep that conversation going throughout the year.

 My theme for February is CandyLand. It just seemed like such a fun, bright, colorful thing to do in the middle of a dreary Michigan winter, and I've had a lot of fun creating these pages for it. A lot of journalists pick a word of the year as something they want to strive for to achieve. Their purpose when they get up every day. I get bored too easily to have one purpose every day. So I am doing a different word every month.

This month, as you can see over there, is Optimism. I have a terrible habit of being pessimistic and this month I really want to focus on improving my attitude.
My Habit Tracker (right) is honestly my favorite page every month. And I tend to just keep adding and adding things to track in it. It's fun to sit down in the morning and reflect on the previous day, see what I did (or didn't) do, or when the last time I did do something was. It also helps a lot with my self-care. I tend to get pissed, stressed, depressed...all the ssed's really. And then I don't take care of myself. I don't bother with make-up, I put off showering for multiple days. It just gets really gross around me sometimes. This way, I'm reminded, hey dirt bag, wash yourself. Obviously that's an exaggeration, I'm not, nor have I ever been, an actual dirt bag.

Something I did last year with relative success was create a 30 day challenge for myself every month. I started with Planking, working my way up progressively until I could do two minutes. (Hey, I'm lazy and out of shape.) Then I did squats and push ups and it was great to get me moving every morning. Last month I tried a non-physical 30 day challenge, writing 2k every day. But I wasn't as motivated for that, so I'm back to a physical challenge. This month, I plant to walk 100 miles in 30 days. It sounds like so much, right? It's not. In fact, it's kind of an embarrassingly easy goal, but it's just a start. Steps to Miles it works out to 7033 steps per day. Which is far below the recommended step count the interwebs has placed on us, but higher than my average 5800 per day average. So it's a challenge, but an obtainable one.

So far, you know, like a few days in, it's going well. I find myself taking the long way around the building at work, and at night I just walk around the house for 45 minutes to an hour reading. I don't have treadmill, and I won't join the gym again, so this is my solution. I actually kind of like it. I'm multi-tasking and working toward two goals at the same time. Damn, I love to color in goal boxes.

At the end of the month I will post my stats for the habits and the challenge and let everyone see what these pages look like filled in. Plus you can check my shower stats. Lucky you!
